As a basic network printer it seems decent for the price (PC)

Summary: Owned this printer about a year. I've never used the scan nor using it to SEND faxes so I cannot comment on those. For basic copying it seems to work just fine. For basic network printing (PC) and receiving faxes it seems to work as expected about 95% of the time.
Summary: Seems some people think if it does not cost a lot it is ok for some of it not to work, not my theory. I expect all of it to work in an acceptable manner but not be able to stand up to heavy use.
Pros: Hardware seems good for the moderate use I normally do. Knowledge that the people who wrote the software & drivers were taken to the ER for laughing fits when the software was approved for customer use.
Cons: Web interface missing field to set time and it also displays the machine as model other than a 4370 as do some of the drivers. The sheet feed does skew sometimes but it is the one I have had yet my 3rd low price machine. Sent support a question and they replied back telling me to do what I stated...
Summary: newegg needs to have a return policy for these. o wells my mistake.
Cons: i bought this thinking of it actually does everything. mainly duplexing. well it does do duplexing but only prints double sided, NOT COPY double sided. The D480 does it all but it was out of stock. I am just bummed cause i really wanted this feature, but i will work around it. SO BUYER BEWARE!!!
Summary: Nutshell review: This all-in-one printer puts out good quality B&W prints and is a FANTASTIC value for the money. It is connected via USB port to a 3 YO IBM laptop running Windows 7. I am setting up a new clinic and office. Money is pretty tight at the moment, so I bought this as a compromise.
Summary: However, for most printing and copying of internal documents, it's a good little machine. If you're printing on anything but normal paper, STAY AWAY (to be fair, this is a problem with most lasers in this price range).
Pros: This is a good AIO machine. I set this up for a small law office and they have been happy with the basic printing, copying and YES faxing (although see cons). I gave it a three because it does most things pretty well, it accepted third party toner and does just about as well with it that it does ...
Cons: 1. Out of the box, noticed that it does not print exactly straight. I called Canon tech support and they told me I might have gotten a defective unit, I returned it, got a new one and it has the same problems. This is a problem for a law office that needs professional straight printed docs 2. DOE...
Summary: Can't use the Canon Toolbox over the network. This could have been a simple fix for Canon to add a network scanning button the Toolbox. Instead the network scanning is effectively DOA.
Pros: When it's connected via USB, it works as advertised
Cons: Max resolution over the network is 300dpi. This means it will look like a fax after it's been sent a couple of times. Scan to PDF over the network means you have to either own or buy PDF software (Adobe Acrobat for example)
Summary: About once per week system freezing and no activities on any devices. For small offices when this type of machines became as mane unit it became a big issue. But again: good printer for money you paid
Pros: Good printer for money you paid, no anymore. Installation very easy and get into network even with static IP But cartages has very little capacity and on the busy office it problems coming.
Cons: Scanning via network support only 300 dpi and this type of the printers have to be at list 600.
Summary: Just bought the MF4370dn and like the web enabled printer setup via the network connection. PRO: Fast print speed CON: Requires Canon software to be installed to setup printer CON: The network scanner is absolutely the worst implementation ever.
